Imagine that your friends who have come in town to visit, stayed overnight at the beautifully restored Art Deco masterpiece, the Threefoot Building, in one of the new Courtyard by Marriot suites. Your daughter, who is attending the School of Kinesiology at MSU downtown, joins you for the parade, which you view from the balcony of her new BellSouth Building apartment, which faces the beautifully decorated city hall lawn. You try to remember what it looked like just five years earlier, and it all seems a distant gloomy memory. The next day, after having breakfast at one of the new coffee shops, you show off the new magnificent wonder, the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience, to your out of town friends.
After experiencing a taste of all the arts of Mississippi, you have a lively discussion concerning where you are going to have lunch, because there are so many options.
After lunch, you indulge in some serious shopping, marveling at how many new stores there are, as well as how many have become downtown traditions, such as The Liberty Shop, Loeb's, and LaBiche.
In addition 26 new privilege licenses were granted and an additional $14 million was invested by property owners during 2015.

Saltillo Mayor Rex Smith began lobbying for the town to join the Mississippi Main Street Association about a year ago. Saltillo formally became the 52nd member of the Mississippi Main Street Association Tuesday morning.
Saltillo Mayor Rex Smith pushed for the city to join MMSA and wants to find a way to pull together the traditional downtown of Mobile Street along with the new business corridor of Highway 145. The mayor wants the city to tap into folks passing through or close by the city of 4,500 people. The cost of joining MMSA is steep on the front end – $10,000 for the first year tapering down to $2,000 annually after the fourth year. According to MMSA, designated Main Street communities receive a minimum of $25,000 in technical assistance during the first year alone. As part of that commitment Smith says the city has already hired a Main Street Director, Lindsey Hines. But, officials admit that the Main Street designation, like the growing business sector, has not happened over night. Main Street officials say the program provides technical, architectural, and other services.
They say Saltillo is now part of a network of some 1,800 Main Street members across the country.
Biloxi is one of 10 cities chosen nationwide that will benefit from the vision and knowledge of experienced planners with the Main Street program.
At a city hall news conference Thursday afternoon, the visitors talked about their favorable impressions of Biloxi and the promise and possibilities they see for future progress.
Biloxi is uniquely positioned to draw upon its history and geographic location to enhance both tourism and economic development. At a city hall news conference Thursday afternoon, the visitors talked about their favorable impressions of Biloxi and the promise and possibilities they see for future progress and economic development.
The planners will take their suggestions and compile them into a report that will be presented during a future visit in the next 18 months. Many small town success stories have a difficult time making it past the city limits, but one Mississippi-based documentary film company recently made the first step at changing how these tales of success are told.
At the Oxford Film Festival last weekend, Blue Magnolia Films introduced four short documentaries that depict how Mississippi small-town businesses are revitalizing and inspiring their communities. So with the help of state agencies like the Mississippi Main Street Association, Mississippi Film Office, the Mississippi Development Authority and the Mississippi Arts Commission, the couple set out to make 25 films highlighting small-town success stories leading up to the state’s bicentennial in 2017.
One of those business owners, Andy O’Bryan, founder of Yalobusha Brewing Company in Water Valley, spoke about how his company started out from scratch and has grown to selling beer throughout the entire state and in Louisiana and, most recently, Tennessee. The panel elicited numerous questions from the audience who engaged the entrepreneurs with inquiries about their businesses, and it was just what Griffin and Fast wanted.
As Griffin and Fast complete the remaining films in the series, they do so with the mission of spotlighting the small-town success stories that are transforming and inspiring the state of Mississippi. Kathy LaPlante, Senior Program Officer with the National Main Street Center, and Kennedy Smith, who is best known as the longest-serving director of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s National Main Street Center, will be conducting the Biloxi Refresh program.
The two days will consist of a tour of the district and community, strategizing sessions with city officials and will close on Thursday with a Press Conference at Biloxi City Hall at 1 p.m.
The communities selected will receive 12 to 18 months of free hands-on technical and community assistance from experts nationwide, funded by the John S.
Saltillo Community Director Lindsey Roper Hines will direct the Saltillo Main Street program.
The two-day conference allowed leaders from various communities both local and state wide, to work together by sharing ideas on how to help their towns grow, but is also brought together professional exhibitors and creative and preforming artists so they can showcase what they have to offer. This conference not only impacts towns across the state, it also impacts our local community. At the end of the day every piece of knowledge learned will help build local community character and help community leaders contribute to the creative economy and the quality of life. A mural greets residents and guests at the mouth of Main Street in Water Valley, Mississippi. Hundreds of them sent blue collar working men and women flocking to the Houston area to cash in… literally. Lafayette County already has its version of Houston (Oxford) and we swell and relax as the seasons change and as our UM students dictate. The vigorous downtown development mission (Water Valley Main Street Association) perpetually works to improve the area, spur economic development and provide a plethora of entertainment opportunities for residents and its cousins from the north (Oxford). Arguably, one of the most essential proponents of the Boom Town blitz is 10-year Valley resident Kagan Coughlin who has in the past few years dumped a tremendous amount of time, effort and resources into several ventures in the Main Street district (more on these below). Down the street from the galleries, new dining and drinking establishments have popped up as well.
The extremely popular Crawdad Hole (restaurant) opened in 2011 and features seafood and Cajun and Creole foods, definite favorites anywhere you venture in North Mississippi.
Reaching deep into its versatile genre art bag, Water Valley Main Street attracts history buffs in droves to the Water Valley Casey Jones Railroad Museum located across the street from the Yalobusha Brewing Co.
Coughlin and Van Beuren have also embraced the real estate facet of the revival, opening the Blu-Buck Mercantile Hotel, Water Valley. Jobs and careers in the township are plentiful, fueled by such entities as BorgWarner manufacturing plant, Water Valley Poultry, Valley Tool, Mechanics Bank and Yalobusha General Hospital & Nursing Home, and of course, the Water Valley School District led by Dr.
New to the economic boom in Water Valley, Base Camp Coding Academy entered the picture last year and was founded by Glen Evans and (who else?) Kagan Coughlin.

OCEAN SPRINGS -- There were tears and hugs and accolades and more tears, hugs, smiles and a toast to the woman whose name is synonymous with Ocean Springs. Beyond all the awards and board memberships, she is best known for shepherding the Peter Anderson Festival. Margaret Miller, retiring at the end of the month, was honored Friday afternoon for 28 years with the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce. The reception was elegant at the city's Community Center next to the Walter Anderson Museum of Art. City leaders gave her credit for the city's success on many levels, but she seemed especially proud of helping to grow the tax base and leading Ocean Springs from being a bedroom community relying heavily on homeowner property taxes to being a city known for its retail shops and restaurants. The festivals she started, the organizations she helped charter were too many to fit on the plaque. The governor's letter praised her work, calling Ocean Springs a city often seen as a model for others. Among her distinctions is the city's designation in the Top 5 Happiest Seaside Towns 2015 and the Great American Main Street Award 2013.
